A man has been arrested for allegedly butchering an innocent woman to death in Delta.
The sad incident, according to reports, happened on Saturday, March 26, after the assailant reportedly laid ambush for the victim along the Agbor-Sakponba Road when she was driving to a burial ceremony, dragged her out of the vehicle and used a sharp machete to slaughter the woman.
A source in the community said the attacker was later caught by an angry mob which was hell bent on killing him before he was rescued by the police and whisked away.
The source said:
“The murder was so callous. The suspect used cutlass to cut her ear, stomach, buttocks, back, laps and spread her legs on the road, exposing her private part. We have never seen a thing like this before.
When the mob gathered and saw the lifeless woman in the pool of her blood, they attacked the assailant who was still holding his blood stained cutlass. They even broke his head before the police came and took him away.”
It was further that the assailant who was dressed in a complete black outfit, had emerged from the bush suddenly, forcing the woman to apply the brakes.
The suspect then smashed her car's windscreen and, forced the door of the vehicle open and dragged the woman out, brought a cutlass and started cutting her body parts, till she gave up the ghost.
